NetStumbler can't find any wireless access points

    I'm using a Dell Inspiron 9300, Windows XP HE SP2 with the Intel
    PROSet/Wireless integrated card. When I fire up NetStumbler, it isn't
    finding any wireless access points even though my 9300 can find bunches of
    them. What am I not configuring properly? I've looked at the information
    on the NetStumbler website and from what I can see, NetStumbler should just
    start working as soon as it is started.

    Do you see any messages about disabling other controllers when you start the
    program?

    No. NetStumbler starts up and reports no access points detected. I've
    tried the Auto Reconfigure button, no change. At this moment, I can see
    five networks on my Intel wireless card. NetStumbler sees nothing.

    Under the device tab... do you see your network adapter listed? In my case it
    says "Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter NDIS 5.1. Also in my case the item
    underneath "Use any suitable device" is checked.
    I don't remember but wonder if it's possible that the first time NetStumbler is
    used that you need to set it up for your network adapter. But don't remember if
    that's the case. For me though... upon loading it disables Win Zero conifg and
    then shows nearby access points that have SSID turned on.

    Found the answer. My card was identified in devices as Intel PRO Wireless
    2200BG Network Connection Prism 2. I selected the NDIS 5.1 option for my
    card and the wireless access points were then found.
